Nevertheless – April 2022

As we pivot from Lent into Easter, Soul by Southwest brings you this spring 2022 collection, “Nevertheless.”


The word nevertheless catapulted into our consciousness back in 2017 when, during a hearing, a female senator persisted in reading aloud the words of Coretta Scott King despite being “warned” to stop. Almost overnight, the word was made manifest on bumpers across the land.


The power of nevertheless is not only political. It carries a deeper power, an Easter kind of power. It sends things forward, converting the struggle that came before — the obstacle, the death — into the surprise of life that comes next.


As people of the cross and of the resurrection, we are a nevertheless people. We hope this collection honors and articulates both the before and the after held within this word.
